New warning system tests rescheduled to Feb. 11

The potential for winter weather will delay testing of Southern Illinois University Carbondale’s new outdoor emergency notification system for one week.  

The testing is now set for Feb. 11 between 10 a.m. and noon. Voice messages and the siren audio may be generated to adjust the system’s sound levels for optimal campus performance. 

The new system will be louder and provide more coverage for the campus than the previous system. The system will also be heard in some areas of Carbondale adjacent to the campus.
